Post-16 Work Experience

By Fiona Wilkins - April 26th, 2024 | Posted in Article

Our Sixth Form students have been gaining some wonderful work experience opportunities this year. These have included opportunities at local Care Homes including Burnham Lodge.

Two students have attended every week and found the experience extremely beneficial. They have gained experience in the kitchen and laundry and they have also spent time with the residents either providing drinks and snacks or sitting with them during the activity sessions.

The students involved all say they really enjoy work experience and that it helps increase their confidence. We are very grateful to the local businesses who have been able to accommodate our students but are always looking for more. So if you would be able to offer one of our students a few hours work experience. Please do contact the school via the main office.
